Question: My baby 37 days have aroind 6 times hiccups in a day. Is it normal? How to stop those hiccups
Answer: Yes dear hiccups are very common in infants. It will slowly fade as he grows. Feed twice as often and half as much. Overfeeding is a common cause ofhiccups. If the stomach distends too fast or becomes too full, this can trigger the diaphragm muscle to go into spasms. When breastfeeding, try slowing down feedings, and stop and burp your baby as you switch from one breast to the other.

Question: Hi... Is it normal to have baby hiccups in womb for more than 5 times a day in 35th week?
Answer: Hello dear. A baby in the womb getting the hiccups is perfectly normal. In fact, no movement at all would be more cause for concern. Hiccups from the baby means its central nervous system is well-developed and sending the right messages to the brain. Your baby's hiccups will feel like a series of little rhythmic or jerky movements. It's a great feeling and all the best. Take care.
